The inaugural season of the Overwatch League begins on January 10. 12 teams split into 2 divisions will play for the next six months to see who is the ultimate Overwatch champion, while competing for a prize pool totaling $3.5 million. Unless you’re fortunate enough to make it to Blizzard Arena in Burbank, California, you’re going to have to watch the matches online.

Here are the details on where, when, and how you can keep up and follow your favorite teams during this first week of the Overwatch League regular season. In the meantime, you can start getting your hands on new Overwatch League skins in-game.

How and Where: Simply go to overwatchleague.com where live matches play out through an embedded Twitch livestream. Past matches will be archived under the site’s Videos tab. You can also catch the matches directly on Twitch.com and at mlg.tv.

You track your favorite teams, keep up with league news, and set alerts using the Overwatch League app. You can even customize spoiler settings so you can watch completed matches without knowing the outcome in advance.
